The above photo is shows the business and the custom-painted Route 66 van driven by GlassBoy Studios’ first customer, Greg Gaszak.
The business is housed in the nearly-century-old Brooks Building that once housed a grocery store, feed store and welding shop. Renovation work on the building began last summer.
GlassBoy Studios makes smaller-scale replica neon signs for classic Route 66 business. Rayburn told me the building has to be modified a bit for full-scale operations, but he’ll be able to do neon-tubing repairs and bending this week.
Tourist Trap Tees designs T-shirts inspired by Route 66 legends.
GlassBoy Studios will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
